This volume provides the prescribed cultural background that is part of the final phase of the Basic Course in French. The texts provide the basis for discussions and personal research through which students become acquainted with various aspects of the French-speaking world and learn the referential meaning of words and expressions as they are understood by the educated native speakers of French. The topics presented include: (1) French geography, politics, agriculture, family life, education, the military academy, industry, holidays, literature, and history; (2) other countries where French is spoken, such as, Belgium, Switzerland, Guiana, Haiti, Algeria, and Zaire; (3) the French in America; and (4) means of transportation in Central Africa.
